Future Unfazed as Wicked Brawl Unfolds in Middle of Concert

8/21/2017 6:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Future got bum-rushed onstage and that poor bastard who did it paid a hefty price -- security tossed him back into the crowd and a melee erupted.

The incident went down Friday night at Future's concert at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in Alabama. The rapper was in the middle of performing "Wicked" when the overly eager fan made his way onstage.

We're told security managed to get the fan off stage and, once back on the floor, the fan started fighting security. That's when security tossed him back onto the crowd, who took matters into their own hands and laid a beatdown.

Arena security and off-duty cops brought control in a matter of minutes ... all while Future performed throughout the fight. We're told EMTs treated several people and cops took statements but it's unclear if any arrests were made.

Bum-rushing the stage ... it never ends well.

George & Amal Clooney Parents' Night Out in Italy

8/21/2017 7:02 AM PDT

George and Amal Clooney took a break from baby duty Sunday night and decided to go to a restaurant that rivals their fame.

George and Amal hit up Harry's Bar at the Piazza Risorgimento in Lake Como. She looks amazing ... remember, she dropped the twins 2 months ago.

Kinda funny ... Amal got all spiffy in a glowing green dress, but George didn't follow suit, or anything even close.

Can't blame George for dressing down ... guy's gotta be losing sleep these days, or he just doesn't care 'cause he's worth half a billion.

Lonzo Ball says he's incredibly thankful to Jay-Z for ordering 3 pairs of his ZO2 kicks -- but reminds the mogul the shoes ain't coming for another 3 months!

We got Lonzo out in Bev Hills over the weekend -- after dropping some cash at Louis Vuitton -- and asked about Jay publicly and privately throwing his support behind the Big Baller Brand.

"I'm just thankful man," the Lakers rookie said ... "Appreciate it."

Lonzo says he hasn't met with Jay and doesn't know too much about the business side of the shoe line -- "I just play basketball man. I don't handle that."

As for Jay's one complaint ... that he hasn't received any of the shoes yet -- Lonzo reminded Hov that they aren't scheduled to ship until November. 

As we previously reported, Jay appeared on "Rap Radar" podcast on Tidal last week and told Elliott Wilson and B.Dot that he's backing the BBB brand because it's important for him to help black owned businesses.

Lisa Vanderpump is expanding her empire, and she's counting on a couple of Toms to make it happen.

It's interesting -- the Toms are best buds and tossed out the idea of opening a joint with Lisa last season called Tom & Tom ... and it looks like she's making their dream come true.

Our sources say the plan is to open the new restaurant in November ... right around the same time the new season of 'VR' debuts.

We're told Lisa's still working on a possible deal with Sandoval and Schwartz regarding ownership and management.

EXCLUSIVE

Abigail Breslin blindsided her assistant by canning him out of nowhere and stiffing him on his final paycheck ... according to a new suit.

Michael Helms claims he worked as an assistant for the "Scream Queens" actress until she fired him on August 4. Problem is -- he'd already invoiced her for July, but was told he wasn't going to get paid for that month ... according to the docs.

Sources connected to Michael tell us Abigail spoke with him shortly after firing him to find some sort of compromise. We're told her legal team promised they'd be in touch with an offer, but just blew him off ... so Helms filed suit.

He's asking for $3,500 ... which he claims was a month's salary.

Jerry Lewis Last Stand-Up Shows He Still Had It

8/20/2017 1:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Lewis still had his sharp wit and comedic edge 7 months before his death ... as seen here in his final on-stage performance ever.

Jerry was performing at the Southwest Florida Event Center in Bonita Springs this past January, and it just so happened to be his final stand-up gig in front of a theater audience ... for which he stayed seated, presumably due to his age.

Right out of the gate, you can see the legendary comedian hadn't missed a step with his timing, as some females from the crowd shouted a classic line of his from "The Ladies Man" ... and he dished a punchline right back.

As we reported ... Lewis died Sunday at his Las Vegas home due to natural causes, according to his family. 

Jerry ended his set with a joke that quite possibly epitomizes his iconic career. This much is clear ... even at 90, the guy loved what he did. David Letterman can attest to that.

7:15 PM PT -- The White House has issued a statement on the death of Jerry Lewis, saying ... "Jerry Lewis kept us all laughing for over half a century, and his incredible charity work touched the lives of millions. Jerry lived the American Dream -- he truly loved his country, and his country loved him back. Our thoughts are with his family today as we remember the extraordinary life of one our greatest entertainers and humanitarians. Thank you, Jerry. You will be missed."

Jerry Lewis -- the legendary comedian, actor, singer, director and philanthropist -- has died.

Penn Jillette just tweeted, "Jerry Lewis just died. When I met him, I feel apart, just sobbed. I guess it's time for that again."

Another tweet from Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter John Katsilometes says Lewis died peacefully from natural causes at his home in Vegas ... attributing a statement from his family.

Lewis was one of the greatest comedians in the history of comedy. He was known for his slapstick routines and became enormously famous when he teamed up with Dean Martin in 1946.

Jerry starred in more than 50 films, including classics like "My Friend Irma," "The Nutty Professor," "The King of Comedy," "The Bellboy," "The Ladies Man," and "Cinderfella." Jerry starred in a bunch of TV shows as well, including "The Colgate Comedy Hour" alongside Martin, and lots of others leading into the 21st century.  He also starred in the Broadway musical "Damn Yankees."

Jerry has 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame ... one for TV and another for film.

Lewis also was known to millions for decades as the emcee of the "Muscular Dystrophy Telethon" held every labor day weekend, where Lewis would raise money for 24 hours straight. He raised nearly $2.5 billion by the late 2000s through his telethons -- he was also nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 1977 for his efforts in raising awareness and money for the disease.

Lewis got a lifetime achievement award in 2009 by the Academy of of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. 

Comedy greats have poured in to express their condolences and memories of a comedy legend himself.

He was 91.

Russell Simmons We Didn't Honor Hitler So Why Honor Robert E. Lee?

EXCLUSIVE

Russell Simmons is clear as a bell ... we wouldn't think about erecting a statue honoring Adolf Hitler, so what's the argument for doing the same with Robert E. Lee?

We got Russell out Saturday at Tao in Hollywood and didn't hesitate ... honoring people with bad intentions is simply wrong.

Russell was into honoring someone ... Dick Gregory, who passed Saturday. Russell says Gregory inspired Def Comedy Jam which helped launch the careers of a number of African American comedians, including Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Chris Tucker.

JAY-Z paid homage to the late Chester Bennington Saturday by performing "Numb" at a UK concert.

JAY and Linkin Park have history ... they re-did the band's hit "Numb" back in 2004, so the mogul had reason to pick that song out to honor his good friend, who committed suicide a month ago today.

You hear JAY at the VFest event fire an order to the crowd, "Let's show some love for Chester tonight!"

JAY is in the middle of a heavy touring schedule promoting his new album, "4:44."
